I grew up with a love of wildlife and art. In 1984 I qualified as a zoologist from Bangor University and worked for a few years for a Wildlife Trust as a botanist and illustrator. I then went on to work freelance as an artist. Some years ago I completed a printmaking course; I particularly enjoyed the technique of linocut which enabled me to develop my own style. I now work from my garden studio in York producing limited edition hand-coloured lino prints of birds and animals.
